Mine didn't go too nuts....I bought an 1851 Navy on the way home from work.   I said, as I always do "Look what I bought for you, honey!".  She asked if I was going to wrap it up and give it to her for her birthday.  I said  "No, I figured this is mine, and I'll go buy another for you...."

What we have here is a failure to comm -- Ah Wrong line.  Different movie.  What we have here are Replicas of a 19th Century Custom Colt 1851.  A presentation piece if you will.  This offering from Pietta generated the most excitement the CAS community has seen in several (many) years.  The artistry in steel does not disappoint.  BUT:  What about after you get it out of the box, wipe off the goo and then wipe off the drool.  I have a pair, and I drool every time I pick them up. 

So the question begs, what did they need.  They are Pietta.  They needed the usual preparation to be competitive CAS percussion guns.
Just not as much of it (preparation)

Both guns needed to have the Barrel/Cylinder gap opened several Thou.  About three Thou.
I gave both guns a shallow 11 Degree forcing cone, a light chamfer then polished the breach end of the barrel.
Both cylinders needed a light polish on the cylinder face to smooth off the machine marks
I then fit the wedges.  Not a whole lot of fitting

The bolts fit the cylinder notches.  VERY tightly.  Too tight.  I relieved the mating surface of the bolt to give a better (looser) fit.
Polished the frame side of the Bolt for smoothness and the bottom of the bolt for smooth interface with the T/B Spring
Polished the frame side of the Hand and de-burred the OEM hand spring and polished the contact surface of the spring.  I did not feel the need to replace these Hand Springs with Coil Spring and Plunger.  I feel the OEM spring is going to last.  And last.  And last.  And ........
The hammer channels were a mite rough and a mite tight in spots with some small roughness down in the frame.  I opened up the tight spots and polished the hammer channels
I made and installed Cap Rakes in both guns, Modified the Hammer for Cap Rake.
Tossed the OEM Main Springs and replaced Them with Lee's Gunsmithing Gunfighter Springs
Polished the contact pads on the Trigger/Bolt Springs
Replaced the OEM nipples with SliXshot nipples
Installed action overtravel stops
Did not replace the front sights.  Would have to cut into the engraving.  Not yet.
Cleaned all the yucky black goo out of the guns.  Icky
Went out on the back porch and busted some caps.  BANG!!

These guns are now SWEET!!  Smooth and light with very positive, solid lockup.  They go to their first match this weekend.  I'm excited.
If one does not want to go thru all of the above and your only going to play with them occasionally, First and foremost, fit the bolt to the cylinder, polish up the hammer channel, polish up trigger/bolt spring and hand spring contacts and trash the OEM Main Springs for aftermarket. 

The overall is Wonderful.  Along with the Pietta Marshal, which is also polished and heat treated, they are collectively the best made percussion guns on the market.  If your not on the list at EMF, get on the list.  These are excellent guns.


PS:  I probably forgot something.  OOPS.  Just ask.

Piece of Cake Bunk.  Always willing to jump in there and help a friend in need.  Today, however, I did give a jingle to Buffalo Arms and order up 3 boxes of brandy new Mag Tech 12Ga hulls.  I'm set.  I've actually completely switched from Plastique to All Brass.  All FUN!!
